There is so much out there on the ideas of affirmations, beliefs, thoughts and in general, the things we feed our brain. Personal motivational geniuses like Jack Canfield, Tony Robbins and Wayne Dyer challenge us to bring forth our most powerful and action-oriented selves in the pursuit of creating the life we want. It’s all up to us and what we set ourselves up for.
Are we victims of circumstances, of our past, and play that out throughout our lives? Do we decide to take responsibility for our lives as they are now and look to create, if need be change, and become active participants in shaping our lives?
What we choose to focus on is what shapes our lives.
We hone in on negatives, we bring forth negatives.
We focus on the positives, we bring forth more of the positive.
Even when we’re not consciously aware of something, be it a belief or thought pattern, it has taken root within ourselves and planted its seed from which many more positive, or negative buds will bloom. Our mind is a fertile ground for growth.
It is therefore so important to provide it with the care that will help produce the vibrancy, colors and beauty of a June garden in its fullest bloom.
Because we as humans are ever evolving and by definition growing – otherwise we stagnate and die- we need not define ourselves by what we used to… like, do, think, feel, believe. We don’t have to keep ourselves locked into our old habits of behavior, thought patterns and beliefs if they are not serving us well.
Am I perhaps alluding to Change? Yes, but actually I want to focus here on a precursor to change – what we tell ourselves about who we are, what we’re capable of doing, what we notice and bring into our sphere of life.
Certainly when we’re going through a trying time where we have to call upon ourselves and all our inner resources to keep going, some good old positive self-talk can serve us well. …
